Making some baked tilapia right now. I don't really know how to cook so it'll be interesting. I put some butter, parsley, garlic powder, lemon juice, and olive oil on em, and set them on a regular baking pan. Smells delicious, i'll see how they taste

well played with the gyros

I've always thought about doing some in the oven in a loaf pan, but it just doesn't seem the same.

Looks like you went all lamb, but I think I'd go lamb and beef if I made some. Not that I'd complain about all lamb...I just like the texture that that the mixed meats give.

Had a great lamb burger in Tokyo recently, actually, ha.

I used this recipe:
http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/a...ipe/index.html

Cooked it on the rotisserie. I followed the recipe, but my grill must putr out more BTUs than Alton's as the internal temp was over 170 when I checked it after the low temp cooking. It was still tasty, except the over cooking dried out the meat a bit.

I've thought about tossing in some beef. Just didn't have any on hand. Plus, I don't mind all lamb.

Yep. Yogurt, cucumber, garlic, salt and red wine vinegar. I basically followed the recipe in the above link except I omitted the mint. (Didn't have, and I don't feel it belongs.)

I'm no genius. I just like to eat and I can follow a recipe.

Venison pasta sounds pretty damn good.

soy, hoisin, rice wine vinegar, sesame oil, sugar, mirin, garlic, ginger

ive made gyros before too, but i just slow roasted a whole leg of lamb studded with garlic gloves rubbed with olive oil, salt, pepper, and rosemary. i then thinly sliced it with a knife. what you did is a very neat take on it too though.

I saved the other half of the leg of lamb to make a nice roast too.

all this lamb talk reminds me, ive been wanting to make a lamb stout stew. cube up a leg of lamb, lightly cover it in flour, salt and pepper, sear it, and remove from pan. sweat onions and celery until soft and translucent, then add minced garlic, return the lamb with salt, pepper, thyme, crushed tomatoes, cubed potatoes, and a few bottles of your favorite beer. simmer for a few hours and voila.

Yea no, gyro is almost a meatloaf made from a blend of ground meats, always including lamb. What he made was pretty much just roast lamb, which is ****ing delicious.

yeah, i know the meat isnt what is usually considered gyro meat, but i dont have the means to make it authentic. now if i had a vertical spit, that would be a different story, but most of us dont lol. i just called it a gyro anyways because i added onion, tomato, homemade tzatziki, and put it on pita.

No pictures, but I made a chicken/shrimp/andouille sausage pasta dish with a red pepper/garlic/red onion white sauce with tons of creole seasoning. Was amazing.

That sounds tasty.

I've been to NOLA a couple of times and can't wait to visit again. So much good food in New Orleans. Actually it's the simple things I crave the most like crawfish, muffeletta and cafe du mond. I might just have to make myself some gumbo now that I'm thinking about it.

Isn't that the proper way to cook it? Like mash the lamb up with spices, form it and roast it and shave the pieces off?

Well at least at restaurants..

Pretty much. The meat is usually a mixture of lamb and beef roasted on a spit.

I just made a spin on New England clam chowda hehe. Towards the end of sweating the onions and garlic, I added turmeric and some other Indian spices from my rack. I used mussels as well as clams and corriander instead of parsley (way better/bolder flavor IMO). I also added some habanero hot sauce and chili infused sesame oil to finish it. I call it New Delhi seafood chowder hehe. It's pretty good but godamn mussels are fishy tasting. Next time I'll stick with clams. The Indian flavors work really well with clam chowder though.

muffulettas are too good. i used to not be too big of a fan of olives, but now i love them, especially kalamatas.
